The End of the Line

How Overfishing Is Changing the World and What We Eat is a book by journalist Charles Clover about overfishing.   Charles Clover, a former environment editor of the Daily Telegraph and now a columnist on the Sunday Times, describes how modern fishing is destroying ocean ecosystems.   Documentary filmmaker Rupert Murray has made a film based on Charles Clover’s book which also examines the devastating effect that overfishing has had on the world’s fish populations and argues that drastic action must be taken to reverse these trends which, if not reversed, will result in the oceans without fish.   The film is available via DVD or streaming, see https://streamingmoviesright.com/us/movie/the-end-of-the-line
